Web3D 2021 Highlights Convergence Research and Industrial Use Cases across the Web
November 4, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Join us at this year’s Annual ACM Web3D 2021 Conference. A Virtual event from November 8-12, 2021. The conference is hosted by the Visual Computing Lab of CNR-ISTI, Pisa Italy(the largest research institute for Computer Science in Italy), and sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH in cooperation with the Web3D Consortium.
This year’s theme “A Shared 3D Workspace” emphasizes the increasing global demand for working collaboratively online, This sudden switch to remote teaching/working/interacting raises many urgent needs for new tools, systems, and paradigms. Join us and engage with the future of the 3D on the Web! Thanks to our sponsors, registration is free.
The conference program brings its signature top-quality Papers, Tutorials, Workshops, industrial use cases and a Humanoid Animation competition. From Virtual Reality to Web publishing, this conference brings together experts from the fields of medicine, AR/VR, Digital Twins, and Design,Printing and Scanning to discuss the future of Web3D, identify barriers, and find common denominators to advance this technology. The Keynote Speaker will be Thierry Duval on the topic, “Meeting the requirements for an efficient collaboration within 3D Collaborative Virtual Environments: a survey of 30 years of practice”.
We are seeing an explosion of interactive 3D content on the Web with WebGL now widely supported by browsers. With tools such as X3D, X3DOM, X_ITE, three.js, glTF, and A-Frame. Today, anyone can create and publish Web3D content for virtually any domain or application. Commercial game engines such as Unity, Unreal, and Castle Game Engine offer more and more ways to integrate open specifications and Standard formats in their applications. Join us as we explore the many applications and benefits of publishing in the WWW ecosystem!
Learn about 3D technologied from our tutorials; participate in our workshops and industrial use cases discussions. Sponsors for Web3D 2021 include: SIGGRAPH, Khronos Group, IVN Networks, and Web3D Consortium.
About the Web3D Consortium: The Web3D Consortium is a non-profit, international standards organization that originally spearheaded the development of the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML 97) specifications. Today, the Web3D Consortium is utilizing its broad-based industry support to continue developing the X3D® specification, for communicating 3D on the Web, between applications and across distributed networks and web services. Through well-coordinated efforts with the ISO, W3C, DICOM, OGC and now HL7, the Web3D Consortium is maintaining and extending its standardization activities.
